believe the economy was so messed up by george bush that obama struggled mightily to overcome this horrible situation he inherited. the second reason is most americans believe republicans only care about rich people. and those are branding problems that the republican party has to to overcome. and it's hard to overcome it because you've got three obstacles; academia, hollywood and our major media, all of which are overwhelmingly liberal. when you say something, it's got to be interpreted through the filter of those three entities, and often it's been distorted. >> host: larry elder is our guest, this is booktv on c-span2 live from the los angeles times festival of books, campus of usc. mike's in fort worth, texas. hi, mike. >> caller: how's it going, larry? my -- pretty good. i'm a african-american democrat, but i agree with you one of the big problems in the african-american community is lack of fathers in the house. but i think, larry, when you say that, you kind of come off kind of harsh on black people. now, what's the reason behind the lack of a lot of fathers being in th

of texas does recently because of the leadership though shown by george w. bush, is that when you look at states like arizona, not typical in arizona, but i was just thinking alabama, arkansas' next. if you look at arizona, if memory serves arizona export something like $50 billion a year. if you look at texas can we export $206 billion a year. 35% of those exports go directly to mexico. i think george w. bush understood the tenuous but important relationship that has to exist with our neighbors to the south. i think he was very strategic and smart in building and growing and fostering a relationship over time. and today, texas is benefiting from his leadership back then. a large proportion of the hispanic owned firms in this state and minority owned firms in the state are actually owned by mexican nationals. and so this didn't happen by accident. it happened because very strategic visionary leadership happened two, three decades or a decade ago. now we are benefiting from the. >> creating an environment. >> absolutely. doesn't happen overnight. now you see other states beginning to re

serve on that court are people who were appointed by george w. bush to the courts. host: tell us about changes you'd like to make guest: the system certainly is not working very well have a court to that simply uses a rubber stamp and allows for every single request, there is no genuine oversight being conducted. the deeper problem here is that the wrong judgments are being made concerning what is relevant. the statute is clear that in order to collect any information under any circumstances, domestically, that information has to be relevant to the investigation of terrorism by a foreign person. that is why we have the defense department to protect us from actions by foreigners, not actions by americans. there has been a clear line drawn since the 1870's. that the fence department is supposed to defend us from foreign enemies. domestically, we rely upon the fbi and the department justice. notwithstanding, for the past few years, the nsa has gone wild and conducted domestic surveillance on literally every single american, all 320 million people who have a telephone. that is wrong and un
somewhere that barbara bush is related to the polks and she used their dinner service while her and george bush was in the office. is that true? >> i don't know. good question. >> as our series progresses, as we get it barbara bush, we'll answer that question for you. we'll go back in time and learn about how that political partnership came together. you told us sarah polk was from a wealthy family in tennessee. how did she and james polk meet? >> they ran in the same circles. probably through -- either through andrew jackson or through her own father's family. polk went to the -- graduated from the university of north carolina and then went into law and studied in nashville and became clerk of the legislature and they met there or they met at andrew jackson's because the polk girls were often at the jackson's home. certainly jackson is known or we think that he advised polk to marry her. this is who you need as a wife, he would say. and then it is commonly said that she told polk she wouldn't marry him unless he ran for office but and of course he did and he won and they were married in 1
on the left during the george w. bush years. it was the same kind of over average in the executive branch. you mentioned dreamers, obama care. these are all agenda items that the president decided to execute because he didn't want to involve congress. because he couldn't promote his agenda through congress. that's not the way we make laws in this country. we can't pretend just because the president wants to do something, another branch of government doesn't that gives him the authority to do so. >> you've studied relationships between congress and the executive branch for a long time. is what we're seeing here unprecedented or a more normal thing? >> it's more normal, taken to a different level. i get amused when i see the back and forth on this. i remember wall street editorials during the reagan and bush years which made it clear there was no article i in the constitution. now you're getting indignation over things that they had deeply supported in the past. i don't like to see -- i didn't like to see all kinds of signing statements that basically said i've signed this law, but i'm not going
on immigration. here is a preview of the event hosted last month at the george w. bush institute last month. these are just rough numbers, about a million new jobs in the state of texas in the last five years. roughly a million lost jobs in california. that is amazing. points is what we are seeing right now is one of the great wealth transfers in american history geographically from states like california that don't get it right, my home state of illinois that don't get it right and states that do get it right like texas. this is one reason to be bullish on the future of texas. the interesting thing is texas and california are the two highest immigration states. the tax system is a much better job of economically assimilating immigrants so they are successful here. tell a foreign more of a welfare invites immigrants and the welfare system at a much higher pace than texas does. people come to texas, in my opinion, for jobs. people come to california for welfare grade i think you see the differing economic outcomes as a result. texas is the model other states should be emulating. see that ent
believe that george bush and our supreme court expect our supreme court that it is more dangerous than al qaeda. the rulings that they have made are so naive, one that i can think of is the it's the same as businesses the same as individuals and anyone with common sense knows a corporation is not an individual. but it is now. and the idea of it being the supreme court unjustly gave then george bush the presidency, our country is divided and we will stay divided until then and when it will be corrected, i do not know but some day the justice has to come out of it. host: hope your voice improvs. om the next year the primary challenge for senator mitch mcconnell and his democratic opponent he is expected to face on led by piece mitch mcconnell pointing out failing to back the push to defund the signature health care law even if that means shutting down government. the supporters on friday with the subject line mcconnell surrenders to read on obama care and senator mitch mcconnell is accused of raising the white flag. they say he needs to start with the state-wide media campaign. he now ru

are left over from george bush. bill clinton deregulated the commodities future trade commission. he also got rid of glass- steagall. if he had not gotten rid of that during his time in power, then -- we woulde had not have had the economy that collapsed. exceptas done nothing higher the same people to correct that. republicans could not be happy. there were no no regulations. our economy is only for the billionaires. it is mostly because the democrats do nothing to correct the problems. we will move onto bonnie from idaho. on the republican line. i am a registered republican but i actually vote for the person i would support, hillary clinton. i agree with president obama, i am looking forward to the healthcare that is going to be coming on january 1. i am a registered nurse. i had to quit work because my husband has an illness and i have no insurance. i am looking forward to having insurance. i think president obama has really stepped forward and took on this issue. what is it about the former secretary of state that appeals to you? i like the way she has the world affairs as secretary o

they did? george h.w. bush, because about 20 years later, a woman showed up to one of his rallies with a pistol in her purse, and they were doing something they had done for the last 20 years that they had not done the 200 years before then. they were checking purses, too, and they found that. then you say to yourself, maybe what we need, maybe what we need is a racial squeaky fromm, and you start searching through the history books, you find out we had one.in 1901. raise your hand if you remember who was president before theodore roosevelt. no one remembered.a few guys, thank you. put those guys on "jeopardy!" most people forget when roosevelt came into the administration he was vice president and was somewhat who is this guy, this showboat guy from -- fighting wars in cuba. hat elevated him was that he was a very popular vice president for a popular president. it was mckinley.he was killed just after he was reelected. he was at a pan-american exposition, a world's fair in new york state. president mckinley was working the rope line, and a man standing at point blank range at the
